50. Inverbervie, Angus. (NO 841 734)

Centimetric Early Warning Radar Station built in 1952 and closed in 1993. The site was managed by the US Navy from 1960 to 1978, in conjunction with their operations at nearby Edzell. Five radar systems were used at Inverbervie, three type 13 and two type 14. These were designed to provide surveillance of the North Sea and the North coast of Britain to give the British and American military early warning of a possible Soviet attack. After the US Navy moved out in 1978, the bunker lay dormant for six years before it was designated the reserve headquarters for Craigiebarns[46] in Dundee. The station was closed in 1993 and sold in 1999. There are some excellent photographs of the interior of the station at the www.subrit.org.uk/rsg/sites/i/inverbervie/index.html website.
